people today are much more free, even politically. this release the energy of the chinese people and you have this rapid economic growth. that is the story line that i will give you as to why the chinese miracle and not last. >> go ahead. >> i thought that what by me extra time. i don't know how many of you heard the story. "the onion' declared north korea's leader the sexiest man alive. the, as party newspaper did not raise this was a satire and reprinted it straight up. this is a little bit funny. there is a litle bit of an insight into the current leadership. they would not allow this kind of satirical irreverent towards their leader. they do not recognize satire when they see it. it may seem absurd you can mistake an "onion" story for a real start but they did. a fundamental flaw is you have no feedback. that's what is missing in china. we now know that thanks to "the onion." >> i will have dambisa moyo join us. another author of several best-selling books. this year she published "winner takes all." she has been named one of the most influential people of the world by "time" magazin

energy needs for more energy than they can produce themselves, and to maintain the economic growth which they believe is essential. we observed that the south china sea is a potential source of energy supplies for china and that there is a contention among the nations in that region as to where the ownership and rights of access are to the south china sea. and this is conceivable that china might seek to reestablish its claim there by military coercion and that could lead them into a confrontation with the united states' desire to maintain free access. the best way of avoiding that military conflict is what we should see because the military conflict with china would be catastrophic for both nations, indeed for the whole region. so, we want to avoid that. i believe the best way of avoiding that is by maintaining a -- continuing to maintain a strong naval presence in the region, and by having an unambiguous commitment to doing that. i believe that our new national security strategy is that unambiguous commitment, and i believe that the u.s. navy is capable of maintaining that unambiguous
developed every major energy source and now moving to green energy and you're saying we shouldn't invest in it. >> the government has developed every major energy source? my gosh, and-- >> hold on, guys, go ahead. >> and oil-- >> right, the only reason that these major entities, alternative energies get developed and they're alternative at the time they're produced, whether we're talking timber, coal, oil or nuclear is because of massive government investment. this is nothing new. >> caroline. >> we use today invest 1% of our federal budget on alternative energy 100 years ago and now only investing 1/10 of 1% and grudgingly, even though green energy spending has created a million jobs in the last four years. so, yes, it does create jobs and-- >> caroline. >> to compare what's happened are you saying that unemployment hasn't gone down? it certainly has. >> brenda: go ahead. toby, one man's loophole is another man's tax incentive? >> well, i mean, here is a news flash, caroline, god bless you, the actual reason that prices have gone up for these resources has been actual demand, actually t
had found somewhat of a spiritual home base. allow the energy to flow. and after about three months of really just doing the breathing with her, because i wasn't strong enough to do the gentle stretch exercises, but just doing the breathing, i found a great reduction in my pain. in the mornings, i do get up and i meditate. not for long. just about ten minutes. and i do my own personal practice first thing in the morning. and it's usually a fairly quiet practice. and it has... it's a flowing practice, just to get the juices flowing. i knew... when i went to that yoga class, i knew i wanted to know more. i knew i wanted it to be part of my life for the rest of my life. i also knew that it filled a spiritual gap that i had, and that i'd been searching to fill that gap for quite a long time. >> i just think that yoga has kept me in the best of health. and i'm so thankful for that. it has made such a difference in my life. people can't believe that i walk with my shoulders back. my balance isn't always the best, but that comes with age. i just can't say enough about yoga and what it's do
rush up to heat the ceiling. they actually burn the air and that wastes expensive energy. here you can see how hot the old-fashioned heater gets and over a 15-minute period, it shows how all the heat from this old heater rushes up to the ceiling while the rest of the room is cold. >> now let's run this same test with an edenpure. you can clearly see that over the same 15-minute period, the edenpure gently warms the entire room, enveloping it like a comforting blanket. and look at the edenpure itself-- it doesn't get dangerously hot like burning coil heaters. so not only is edenpure cost-efficient, it also heats faster and it's much safer than old-fashioned space heaters. >> now, at this point, we'd normally tell you about edenpure's unconditional 60-day, money-back guarantee, as well as our famous five months same-as-cash payment plan. but rather than me tell you, let's go back to alaska one last time to meet roberto mata, a young father who gets laid off every winter. >> well, the monthly payment plan with the edenpure-- at that particular point in time, it was the dead of winter, i w

with this energy boom and things going on in housing and maybe manufacturing. we did see in this report some gains in construction. we saw gains in manufacturing. what's your sense? what do you make of this report? >> well, the construction and manufacturing, some was sandy related and some housing related. the only real bright spart was residential construction. that's where the real bang for the dollar is in terms of jobs. that's the place we need to see come back. we continue to see, though, some losses in educational employment at the state and local level and retirees in the postal sector. we have yet to see cutbacks in postal -- the budget for the post office so, that will be a bigger head wind down the road. but we are seeing retirees come out there. the public sector still a drag on the overall numbers. i also think it's important on the health care industry where the surprise on the upside was in nursing and in nursing homes, basically, people -- the 80 and over demographic are the fastest growing demographic today. so you're starting to see that filter through and the contour of the jobs

and most of the energy that comes into san francisco is piped in from other places so we have to look at everything from a regional perspective. in terms of what we're doing with our infrastructure, we look at many risks to our systems to improve their reliability, both gas and electric. while we talk about earthquakes quite a bit, we look more at ground movement in general, whether it be earthquake related, land slide related, but in terms of our reliability all those risks are looked at and there's on-going efforts to increase the reliability of both the electric system and the gas system throughout the san francisco area and through the northern and system part of our state. we have hundreds of millions of dollars of pipeline replacement happening which is a major risk in a major earthquake. most people are aware in loma prieta the pipeline held pretty well but we are trying to build in a better manner to withdraw earthquakes. on the electric side, things are pretty well proat the timed already. things shut themselves off. depending on the magnitude of the earthquake, it could

you have an enormous amount of creative energy, and there's no way to express it. that's why a lot of people get into drinking or drugs or whatever. ben and i talked about trying to channel it somewhere, and the script was a good way to do that, because it kept us focused and it captured that creative energy which otherwise would have just been frittered away in some other way. so in one sense it was about control then. now if there's an idea i think is really good and i feel like i can write it, then i'll do it. but i don't know that that's about control, necessarily. tavis: i don't know how to frame this question, but i'm going to ask it and you'll do justice to it, i'm certain. given that you started out as a writer, to your point, because you couldn't get hired at first, what kind of freedom, liberty, i'm trying to find the right word here, has the writing, knowing that you can write, knowing that you can write really good stuff, knowing that the good stuff you write can be made, so that you're not ever stuck in this actor's lane, if i can use that -- you see what i'm getting a
